Can someone help pls

Thank you

Do you create a redirect from your apex name (non-www) to www? You will want to do that. It is the first option in the following guide.

Thank you so much for your response.

I haven’t created a redirect - would I do that in my domain registrar (Namecheap)?

My website was created on a platform called: and it was setup with - I did not realise that typing would lead to 403 error

DotComPal support are unable to offer me a solution other than rebuilding the site without www. which I don’t want to do, so I thought the answer may be to add it to Cloudflare.

Are you recommending that I set a page rule in Cloudflare as follows: When incoming requests match Field: Hostname Operator: equals Value: Then Type: Dynamic Expression: concat(“”, http.request.uri.path) - sorry, I’m not very technical

No. Definitely not.

Pretty much. I am recommending that you use a Redirect Rule rather than a Page Rule, but what you described is a Redirect Rule and it looks good. You should give it a try and let us know if it meets your needs.
